REVIEW: CoverGirl Clump Crusher by LashBlast!

So here I am, out of my favorite go-to mascara LashBlast by CoverGirl, and so I headed to Safeway to pick up some more (NO, I do NOT get all my makeup products at Safeway, but if you’re in a pinch – you do what you gotta do – okay!?). I noticed this green tube next to my orange tube – and realized I’d never tried this one before! So I grabbed it up!

Here’s what Cover Girl has to say:

Clump Crusher by LashBlast mascara delivers more volume with zero clumps for beautifully separated lashes. Clump crusher’s innovative curved brush features a lash loading section to saturate lashes with loads of product and fine-tooth comb bristles to evenly distribute mascara.

My feelings on the matter. It’s not a terrible mascara, but I wouldn’t buy it again. The brush is so small, IMO, I have to apply 3-4 coats to get it to look the way I want it to. I feel like the “Clump Crusher” aspect of the mascara is probably what I don’t like. It hardly gives you any mascara at all to work with! I want it to actually LOOK like I’m wearing mascara! There are probably PLENTY of women who only want to look like they’re wearing a thin coat of mascara – and if so … this one’s for you. But if you’re like me, and you like a thicker, more visible coating of mascara, pass on this one.

Bottom Line: I’m stickin with LashBlast – the original!

Easter Sunday Makeup!

How many of you are getting together with family or friends on Sunday? Heading to church to celebrate Easter? Have you put any thought into what makeup you’ll wear? Well I have! Easter Sunday is a bright and beautiful day, usually when women wear a pretty, colorful dress, and their daughters wear white gloves and bonnets. Okay, I’ll admit…this was my childhood, but what’s cuter than a little girl in white gloves and a bonnet??

Anyway, Easter is a time to celebrate. The day is often associated with bright and beautiful colors. Pastel pinks, purples, yellows and greens. Here are a few beauty products that would make your Easter complete!
